    Just another quick addition if I may...You will find LOT'S of discussion
concerning the Ebola virus on the newsgroup Bionet.Virology, always a few
messages about Ebola on that one everyday!  Actually, they just recently posted
a pretty complete summary about many of the circumstances concerning infection,

Good Luck!
